- 400,000 guests have used Airbnb in Ireland
- Airbnb say hosts could make up to €548 over bank holiday weekend
Airbnb forecast that August bank holiday demand for their Dublin product will be up 59pc on last year.
Airbnbclaims to have 3,000 Airbnb hosts in Dublin and say a typical host could make up to €548 over the weekend, compared to the August bank holiday last year, when average income was €438.
Since 2009, 400,000 guests have used Airbnb in Ireland with numbers continuing to rise.
Airbnb suggest that Dubliners ‘dip their toes into hosting if they’re heading off for the weekend themselves’, with the potential to off-set the costs of their own weekend away. Hosts can choose when their home is available to rent and it is possible to only host for the bank holiday. See more information on how to host here.
Options they list include:
- A city-centre Industrial style 2 bed.
- A shared apartment in the Grand Canal Dock Area, .
- Clare Ross’s three bedrooms available in her home in Clontarf.
